The Australian Government will provide an estimated $32.2 million to the Occupied Palestinian Territories in 2024-25 (including $20.0 million to UNRWA). Australia's development cooperation and humanitarian assistance is a practical demonstration of our genuine commitment to the Palestinian people. Australia remains committed to a two-state solution in which Israel and a future Palestinian state coexist in peace and security, within internationally recognised borders.

The Australia Awards program contributes to the education of future leaders in areas of economic recovery and long-term resilience. We continue to support Palestinians to undertake Masters level study in Australia.
